On behalf of the Washington University Student Occupational Therapy Association (WUSOTA), we would like to invite you to participate in this year’s online Therapy Career Fair.  The Therapy Career Fair is a great opportunity for students in occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech language pathology programs to connect with vendors from across the country and learn more about potential employment opportunities. Vendors will be presenting information about their organizations, as well as answering any questions you may have as potential employees. 

 The 2022 Therapy Career fair is scheduled for Monday, February 28, 2022 from 9am-4pm CST. This year, the fair will be held over Zoom and will include both a morning and an afternoon session.  Students can register for the Career Fair using the following link: https://forms.gle/ZNcnbcqUtCxanWTA9

As the date gets closer, we will be sending you the following information:

  1. Reminders of the event date & time
  2. Tips on attending a virtual career fair
  3. A vendor brochure with vendor and event information
  4. The Zoom link for the event 

This is a great opportunity for students to network with local and nationwide vendors.  We appreciate your interest in the 2022 Therapy Career Fair and hope to see you online in February!

 

Sincerely,

Kelsey Stevens & Mackenzie Martin
